Sony have really gone and out sold themselves in 2009 and inFamous is a fantastic example of a very stylised and unique game overall. Set in a an Apocolypse scene when something known as a RaySphere is detonated in Empire City, it leaves crime to rule the streets.
However hope lingers in the name (or does it?) of the protagonist (gameplay character) Cole.
This is where the gameplay is interesting. The game judges you on your actions as you clean up the city and whether you'll be the city's Hero or whether they'll potray you as the very symbol of crime your are trying to defeat.
This gives the game incredible replay value, not only for the trophy system but also so you can replay it and see how the story and the characters unfold as you play the game on the other scale of your actions.
The gameplay reminded me of the Spiderman series I saw on the PS2 where you would roam New York doing mission after mission and where this intial thought made me dislike inFamous at first it really grows on you because Sony have really brought the city and characters to life.
The story mode will take you about somewhere beyond 10+ hours you frirst time round and youll really get thrown into the rythum of the gameplay.
I think its a shame there was no online features with this. A simple deathmatch or something would have been acceptable i thought and i think this is the only reason a drop it a star. Other then that a great single player campaign.
inFamous is really a must-buy for and PS3 user in 2009.
